ITEA Magazine 44 - March 2023
Dear ITEA Innovation Community,
After 25 years of ITEA we can look back with pride and conclude a lot has been achieved. And so it should be; my son is 25 years now and if I observe him I see that many things have been achieved in 25 years. Sometimes this is comparable with innovation - you experiment and try out things, accepting that some of the efforts will never lead to any return, in a tangible way. Lust for life and innovation are closer to each other than they seem.
During the last 25 years much has changed for ITEA as well, as it has for the rest of the world. Back in the 90s I remember internet connections still were a rarity at city offices, that now calling themselves Smart cities. Or if you walked along the street using a mobile phone, the size of a brick, you’d get looks as if you were walking on water.
Just some examples of life changing innovations, disruptive and eventually part of our daily life. At ITEA, too, many ground-breaking innovations found their roots before moving to global markets. See the exciting examples that were developed during the early days of ITEA.Read more
